Green Things

It's St. Patrick's Day and I see some people wearing the green today!

The Emerald Isle has lots of parades and celebrations this week to bring attention to the six million population.

The grass is getting greener and early flowers are greening up. The little bit of wheat around here is trying green up but it is very soggy. You can't walk on most fields without sinking in so we still can't get needed nitrogen fertilizer on them.

It will be a few weeks until we really start spending the green to try and green up our fields! You keep thinking isn't that far away but you walk outside and think differently.

The greenhouses are full of green growing plants to sell to us by Mother's Day.

Many of you are doing the green thing by doing things that help the environment and keep it green. The price of fuel is cutting trips just because of the cost but we can all do a little with Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.

I wonder how many green parts Deere and Company are cashing in on today? I bet it's a bundle of green!

I know my Pioneer dealer is busy selling the green with his line of seed.

The first green hat I saw this morning reminded me of all things green.

In agriculture, that is our business.

  2. I think some Pioneer people used too...
